When Nylon Fetishism Goes Awry - Pantyhose Prank Calls

   We ran a piece on this site a while ago about pantyhose fetishism, covering most of its aspects, exploring and explaining various behaviors and drawing some (we hope) educated conclusions. While on the whole, pantyhose fetishism is indeed a mild form of fetishism and a rather common manifestation of human sexuality, there are of course exceptions. A while ago, a news-piece was taken over and trumpeted online by most of the major online news outlets about some guy in Pennsylvania, who was guilty of making what these news sources called "pantyhose prank calls".

What this person, assumed to be a nylon fetishist, basically did was to call various companies and engage female employees in conversations which he would then steer in the direction of his hosiery interest, from what we understood: in a lewd and vulgar manner.
Are there any special conclusions to draw for hosiery lovers from this fiasco? Not any more than for any of the other folks. This individual is a typical case of panty hose fetishism gone astray.

Allegedly, he sometimes made up to 400 calls a day, to various female employees of various companies, whom he would return to haunt often months after his first calls. He was pretty good with words and therefore able to catch his victims off-guard repeatedly, although some would grow to recognize his voice and his style.
The first thing that strikes me about this whole story is how a person was able to place 400 phone calls a day…Given the alleged complexity of his approach, each of those calls must've lasted at least a minute. That's 400 minutes a day (at the very least, not counting the time spent dialing), which translates to 6.6 hours a day…Did this guy do anything else? How could he make a living pantyhose-prank-calling for 6.6 hours each day? There are weird things on God's green earth for sure, and this fellow must be among the weirdest of them all…

It would appear that he was able to keep this "hobby" of his going, pestering people across the country for over 5 years before he gave himself up.
The conversation-opening phrase by which many of his victims got to recognize him over time was supposedly "My you sound enthusiastic today". If you pick up the phone and someone hits you with that line, chances are he'll steer the conversation towards nylons later, and he may even ask you about how good it feels to shed your pantyhose after a long-hard day. If all that happens, you'll know you're dealing with 'celebrity'…

Apprehended on charges of harassment, then released on bail, the pantyhose prankster has allegedly been barred from going to Hooters, to a couple of restaurants and a bank. Whether or not he'll return to his old pranks remains to be seen. He will however remain one of the better expressions of the dark side of nylon fetishism…
